Richard Silverstein Caught In Yet Another Lie
In a comment to one of his latest rants against Israel, DouchebloggerTM Richard Silverstein states categorically in the comments that an Israeli Jewish bus driver killed a palestinian boy.
Silverstein links to this report, which mentions only an Israeli bus driver, and nothing about him being Jewish (as the bottom commenter points out).
This is not a trivial point, considering the driver was an Israeli Arab!
Since Silverstein does not accept regular media outlets as sources – claiming they are pro-Israel and therefore unreliable – I’ll present him with this report from the Palestine News Network, which refers to the driver as “Palestinian” (the way they refer to Israeli Arabs).
Silverstein considers himself a journalist, and even has the temerity to go after real journalists like Matti Friedman.
Pro-Israel media apologist, @mattifriedman spewed lies in Tablet, now The Atlantic has gobbled his garbage. http://t.co/BIx76tIbE9

But once again, he has been exposed as someone who does not do even the minimum of due diligence when posting something, and is guided not by the accuracy of a story but by the extent of damage it may do to Israel.
